Support vector machines (SVM) represent a promising development in machine learning research that is not widely used within the remote sensing community. This paper reports the results of two experiments in which multi-class SVMs are compared with maximum likelihood (ML) and artificial neural network (ANN) methods in terms of classification accuracy. The two land cover classification experiments use multispectral (Landsat-7 ETM+) and hyperspectral (DAIS) data, respectively, for test areas in eastern England and central Spain. Our results show that the SVM achieves a higher level of classification accuracy than either the ML or the ANN classifier, and that the SVM can be used with small training datasets and high-dimensional data.
